The release of Aamir Khan-starrer “Talaash”, scheduled for June 1, has been pushed to November-end or in the actor’s lucky month December, co-producer Ritesh Sidhwani says. Aamir’s involvement with his TV show is the reason for the delay.
“We have postponed the release of ‘Talaash’. It will release either in November-end or the first week of December,” Sidhwani said.
Perhaps a December release could do well for the project, given Aamir’s history with the month. For three consecutive years, starting 2007, he gave back-to-back hits — “Taare Zameen Par”, “Ghajini” and “3 Idiots” — which were released in December.
Citing the reason behind the delay in the film’s release, Sidhwani said: “Aamir’s TV show (for Star Plus) is going to be on air till June. That is eating into the promotion of ‘Talaash’. And since it’s Aamir’s next big film after ‘3 Idiots’, he needs to be around for its promotion.”
Directed by Reema Kagti, “Talaash” also features Rani Mukerji and Kareena Kapoor. It is co-produced by Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar of Excel Entertainment, as well as Aamir Khan Productions.
